Postcards from Paris ... City Crafter

Good morning ...

I am hosting today at City Crafter Challenge and you all know I love to dress things up and alter something simple to make it pretty ... so my challenge this week is 
"Dress It Up"
I want you to take something ordinary ... a book, a box a peg ... anything really ... and dress it up!

I had this simple box lid 

 Which I first covered in black (washi type) tape 

 Then I downloaded some pretty postcards from the French Sparrow ... (grateful thanks to Kerry) and also made some postcards myself using photos of my great Aunt and some digitals to create this ...

... Accordion album

It's made from folded black cardstock which is adhered into the box lid ... Each side has these lovely postcards plus a blank page to add your own photos or memorabilia ... 
Let me take you through Kerry's postcards

... and theses are the ones I made which I will add to Free Stuff at the top of this page in case you would like to use them

I love how an ordinary box lid can become something pretty ... 

... and I would love to see what you can dress up so please come and link up at City Crafter where the winner will have a Guest Design spot with us ...

This week's GD once again is Linda Breedlove ... I can't wait to see what beauties Linda and the rest of the team have created so I'm hopping over to the blog to take a look ... But not before I've linked up to
LESSology where the challenge is all about Packaging

Thanks so much for stopping by ...

Till soon
